With training camps opening this week, we thought this was the perfect time to preview what to expect around the NFL.

Our go-to guy for Schooled with the Professor is Pat Kirwan. I work with Pat and Jim Miller as a fill-in on Sirius radio. Kirwan is the best in the business at studying the league. We start out getting into the increasing trend of teams using three-receiver offenses and how defenses have had to adjust. Defenses are in nickel 65 percent of the time and that number increases each year.

Pat broke down the NFC West, talking Rams, Seahawks, Cardinals and 49ers. He worked with Pete Carroll in the past so he gives great insight on what he thinks about the direction Pete has this team headed. We go in depth on quarterbacks talking Russell Wilson and others. It’s the start of training camp and we have plenty of good football analysis on Schooled.
